About Ken Stringer

Ken Stringer is OPBA’s President. He’d only dabbled in cycling before coming to the Olympic Peninsula in 2012. Then he fell in with this “biker gang,” and has since logged more miles, climbed more hills, and enjoyed more adventures on his bicycle than he ever imagined he would. Retired from a career in government and management consulting, his focus is on cycling and community engagement. He’s a founder of CommunityPlus, a group dedicated to promoting civility, civil discourse and community engagement, and also serves on the Board of the Sequim YMCA.

Riding the Ridge

The road up Hurricane Ridge is one of the iconic cycling routes in Washington. It’s the only one where you can ride from sea level to nearly a mile high in just 20 miles. During the summer season (May 1 through October 15) the road is open 24 hours every day of the week, meaning you can tackle the challenge [...]
